A weekend workshop led by Linda Modaro

Whether you’re new to meditation or it’s been an important part of your life for decades, during this weekend workshop you’ll develop an innovative practice which will both broaden and deepen the reach of your mindfulness.

A relatively new approach to secular Buddhist meditation, through a process that includes both meditation and self-reflection, recollective awareness meditation integrates every aspect of our experience: thoughts, feelings, body sensations, memories, and intentions.  

Recollective awareness meditation – an emotion- and thought-friendly approach

The key feature of this practice is recollecting your meditation sessions through journalling. In doing so, you include and honour what is often considered a distraction in meditation.

Allowing your life into your meditation practice in this way, you will leave this workshop with a far greater understanding of mindfulness and be able to recognise and incorporate beneficial qualities as they develop in your practice.

At this weekend workshop you will experience meditation sessions, dharma talks and discussion, along with small group interviews in which each person will have the opportunity to explore and investigate what they are aware of during a meditation session, and hear others doing the same.

It is the generosity of others that enables Simply Meditation to run events such as this workshop for dana only – dana for both the teachings and for the community. You, too, will have the opportunity to offer generosity to Linda Modaro for the teachings and for the community.
